Re: How often do you tank up your car?

I drive my truck about 380 miles every week and fill up on Sundays. I'm averaging right around 15 MPG and my trip to and from work is about 50 miles round trip.

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

I average a fillup every 10 days or so. While my commute to work is only 8mi each way, my friends live all over the city.

When I tank up, it's usually in the neighborhood of 10 - 13 gallons at a time ($35 - $50)

About twice a week, and I usually put 3/4 of tank in each time.

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

I'll get gas once every 2 weeks. It would be probably once a week if I start using it more.

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

Since they moved my office 27 miles away from my home, I tank up once per week. Fortunately it's mostly highway driving and I get about 24 MPG.I miss the days before kids when I could walk to the bus stop by my house and my wife and I only needed one car, which we'd only fill up about once a month.

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

I drive about 2 miles each way to work, and live in a pretty tight nit urban environment, so I rarely have to use my car for recreational purposes, I gas up about once every 2 weeks or so. I have a 94 Nissan Sentra

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

I used to do it 2-3 times a month when I was in my hometown (3 during the months I worked at a nearby town ~80km away once a week). Now that I moved and go to work on foot, I hardly tank up once a month.

Re: How often do you tank up your car?

Any answer depends on how much driving you do/how far you have to drive.

For me, it's about once a week during the wintertime to keep my tank at least half full all times, but up to ten days during the summertime when I can let it go down to a fourth of tank before heading back to the gas station (although it's been said doing that is bad in any kind of weather). The most I've ever spent at the pump at any one time was $25 USD.

My very first car--a '87 Plymouth Reliant--was a granny car with insane gas mileage after a mechanic did something with it that he was very proud of but I never fully understood. That little car was getting 35 miles to the gallon, and that was back in the '90s.

I put about £30 in a week, but that's usually from whatever's left as opposed as from empty. Daily commute is about 25 mins each way.
